The StoSilent Distance system has created comfortable acoustic surroundings and a contemporary appearance for The Stratford Hotel. The suspended ceiling system attenuates foot traffic and speech noise in the London hotel’s main lobby and Mezzanine Club area, making conversation possible at normal volumes.
The acoustic boards had to cover a large area and accommodate suspended bespoke artwork and light pendants. Although some expansion joints were used, the system allowed large seamless surfaces, appropriate to the contemporary interior design scheme, to be produced. It was finished with a grey-tinted, spray-applied StoSilent Décor M sound-permeable coating to create a fine-stipple surface.
The system allows the creation of sound-absorbent walls and ceilings which must be suspended to reduce room height or accommodate services. It can be used to create seamless surfaces, including inclined planes, curved vaults, or sharp joints as required. It is extremely resistant to cracking and can accommodate air movement requirements and damp, humid conditions.
